Untethered we come undone

spiral strings of a thousand colored thoughts

passing into a beautiful ย pile

something new created from a mind

unwound/unbound and set free.

An image drifts in

as if through the open window in a storm

blowing/bouncing about the walls

like tiny bubbles floating as I pluck each one out

the thin air allows it to hang

for just a moment

before it disappears.

I think of the scent of lemon zest

or perhaps orange and I feel the emotion

settle like dust to the floor,

where is it these random ideas form

as I follow the string from beginning to knot

I find myself transfixed on the shades and hues

of life seen through the eyes

of a mere girl left pondering

what was it that got away in the second that passed

and where is the meaning

in a wayward scent imagined.

How deep the mind can delve

when let loose to find its path

and the day still blossoming before me

I know the swings and shifts

as I tug gently on the string

will only lead me to the hanging end

where I can casually ball it back up,

tucking it away for a creative day

to throw it out there,

let it unfurl

and begin again.

  3. Had a chance to stop in today and visit, I sense things are not so well with you of late, will check my email in case. You are ALWAYS in my thoughts, never forget that…..and I knew now with GA passing you’d be all fired up again….I think someone said it best in your comments, God is compiling an awesome pool for a kick ass band. Sad days indeed. Hugs and love and as always,

  4. I’ve missed you my friend, and sorry about the comment error the other day. First time I’ve helped set up a blog and edited heir piece with them on mine…forgot to sign out as them, Angie Brown Art…..my teacher who has inspired me so much. Your words here make my heart soar, as your words always do, happy as always to see you, as it always is, almost like having chocolate but only once in a long while, makes it so much more appreciated and special. Hope things are good in your world, snow melted, etc….hugs and love to you and the family๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œโ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•‰and hi to Hafiz๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Awesome thing, I’m so happy to oblige my friend. As an FYI, I’ve a recent bombardment of comments from single named sources with a lot of misspellings in the content….send them as spam….first time this has happened to me, albeit on another blog….goes in waves occasionally, been a very long time. A good day of wound threads coming together though๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’œ

  8. The stream of consciousness… sometimes I feel that a summer day is much like this… and though it is nice, it also has the power to divert my attention from the work that I should be doing as an academician…


  9. I hope that’s a good thing (the yo-yo) my mind has been spinning in a thousand wayward directions today, like trying to follow a piece of string and gather it up, only to have the unexpected pop up to ground me again. An odd day, but I feel charged somehow and know something is gonna happen and it will be good ๐Ÿ™‚
